Fortunately, JIS X 0201 is not relevant on the Web.

It’s not included in the Encoding Standard. It is not supported by
Gecko. I didn’t bother checking other browsers.

I request that the WG make it non-conforming to encode a text/css
resource in JIS X 0201 and make it non-conforming for a CSS
implementation to support decoding text/css as JIS X 0201. The easiest
way to do this would be by reference to the Encoding Standard.
